My bodywork is uniquely and intuitively crafted to meet each clients' needs. A session with me explores areas of tension in the body and invites breath, awareness, presence, and targeted pressure to facilitate sustained relief and self-knowledge. My intention is to create a sacred space where you feel attuned to, nurtured, and safe to deepen the relationship you have with your physical, energetic, and emotional bodies.
My style of touch integrates techniques learned from deep tissue, myofacial release, active release... yoga, shiatsu, Lomi Lomi, Thai, and trigger point traditions to safely and lovingly transform the body. Whether you are seeking to heal an injury, prevent an injury, or relax and rejuvenate, I creatively and collaboratively design a holistic session that revitalizes your body, mind, and spirit.
I wholeheartedly welcome folks with all backgrounds, body types, ages, races, and orientations to receive in my studio. Black [trans] lives matter ✊🏿

Angel’s intuition and touch create a synergy like no other I have experienced (and I have been getting bodywork weekly for 12 years). His elegant maneuvers are precise, intentional and amazingly effective. Magically, a shoulder relaxes with just a few strategic maneuvers. His experience with dance and the way he moves his own body clearly inform how he heals a clients’ body. I feels deeply holistically healed by the end of each session. Emotional tensions that I have held for decades have been released in just a few sessions. My partner and I have been booking weekly for just under a year and our sessions are always the highlight of our week. Angel really is a god-send, as his name implies!

I have had chronic pain for the last couple of years and have sought out bodywork from a myriad of different practitioners. Getting bodywork by Angel goes deeper than your run of the mill “relaxing massage,” and is deserving of the title of healer in its most prolific sense.
The environment that angel creates is one that is not just a safe space, but somehow invites expression, freedom from tension, and enjoyment of any sort during the session. I felt that any noise or emotion that came up I was given permission to make and was accepted in a truly nonjudgmental, welcoming, and nurturing way. Being someone who struggles with my throat chakra, it was incredibly healing for me to be encouraged to make noise in a whimsical way during our session as a tool for letting go.
The session was a total back and forth interaction. Angel was so dialed in to my body, when he found a new spot that was sensitive I would react to the new sensitivity, he would acknowledge and validate that he felt it, and then we would work together to move through it. I had never felt so comfortable to go this deep with anyone and I was able to allow myself to be opened more than I had ever been.
At one point I had an emotional response in which I feel as though I had reverted to being a child on his massage table. I have heard of this happening to people before in therapy or in yoga and never really believed it could happen to me. But it did. I felt like Angel provided the touch and nurturing acceptance of a mother figure for me in that moment. I was pleasantly surprised that when my response was so emotional, that he didn’t back away but that it was met with acceptance and we moved through it.
I can not thank Angel enough for the experience I had with him, he allowed me the space to heal in a way I never dreamed possible. I am so grateful for this work and I would seriously recommend him with urgency to anyone in need of healing of any sort. I wish I could send this angel to all of my loved ones for healing <3
